COVID-19 Response Series

As COVID-19 spreads, governments are responding with drastic measures to combat the pandemic’s health and economic impacts. In the mining industry, the virus has harmed workers, disrupted supply chains, and halted operations in many nations. The crisis presents commodity-specific risks to supply and/or demand, which is reflected in ongoing price volatility throughout the sector. There is a risk that countries dealing with this unprecedented crisis may adopt poorly designed policies that may have long term implications.

The following information and events examine key policy implications for governments and actions being taken by governments to address this rapidly evolving crisis.
